Are CAB meetings public? Can I attend a CAB meeting to promote my organization or an upcoming event? CAB meetings are open to the student body if they would like to attend. CAB meets every other Monday starting the first day of classes each semester at 3:30PM in the University Center. If you would like to come to speak at our meeting, please contact Jye Foreman, our Director of Operations at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
QUESTIONS ABOUT EVENTS
Does CAB plan Welcome Week and/or Homecoming? CAB is not directly responsible for planning all areas of Welcome Week or Homecoming. We contribute and participate in many Welcome Week events including the Welcome Back Comedy Show, Paint U: The Ultimate Paint Party and activities during Oak Street Roast and OrgFest. Welcome Week is planned by the board's advisor and the Office of the Dean of Students. CAB contributes one event during Homecoming Week each year called "Homecoming After Dark" on the Thursday evening of the week. Homecoming is planned by the Student Steering Committee. More information about the committee can be found at utc.edu/homecoming.
Why do we not have a major concert on campus each year like other schools? CAB and the university currently do not have the budget capacity to support a large concert. The board revisits the conversation each year. The board is currently in the process of researching alternative funding sources to assist with the planning and execution of a major show. The best way to help CAB make a major concert happen is by choosing "Option 1" each semester for your Student Programs & Services Fee.
